Brass Band Conducting PgDip Royal Birmingham Conservatoire


Course info



Designed for recent graduates and suitably qualified mature students, our taught PgDip Brass Band Conducting courses provide the technical training, collaborative opportunities and podium time necessary to help you prepare for a career as a professional conductor.

As a Principal Study Brass Band Conductor, you'll be offered individual tuition from expert staff conductors, and will spend considerable time developing your directing techniques in rehearsal and in performance. In addition to attending and participating in scheduled brass band activities, you will be encouraged to explore other opportunities to engage with ensembles, as director or observer, both within the Conservatoire and with professional organisations such as Services for Education and Tredegar Brass Band. Brass Band Conducting students should also expect to attend classes/workshops of their peers studying other conducting pathways.

It's normal for conducting students to be proactive in presenting performances of projects that they've generated themselves. You'll receive support and professional advice in pursuing such projects, which should be viewed as an essential element of your studies. Both PgDip and MMus courses provide excellent opportunities to develop other skills relevant to a future career in the music profession.

What's covered in the course?

  • Regular individual specialist tuition.
  • Access to the Conservatoire’s broad range of ensemble activities, including Brass Band and Brass Ensemble, Symphonic Wind Orchestra and Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, ‘Repertoire’ and ‘Pops’ Orchestras, and Thallein (Contemporary Music) Ensemble.
  • Regular opportunities to rehearse and perform with ensembles within the Conservatoire.
  • Regular opportunities to observe ensemble rehearsals, including sectional rehearsals directed by departmental heads or specialist guest tutors.
  • Opportunities to join orchestral and choral conducting classes.
